ABSTRACT

This study launched from the regret of Se-Weol-Ho Event, which our society could not protect children safely from disasters. As a result of investigation and analysis on the status of legal system, policy, and training for child safety, present disaster management policy has been prepared uniformly for adult level and has not considered the concept that child has priority for being protected. And child safety policy has focused on more safety education than protection. To improve this, this study points out three directions; first, child should be considered as a policy objective because it consists of 20% of population; second, disaster management policy should be customized for children who have little capacity to protect theirselves and avoid the danger; third, child protection concept should be introduced into the society. As a practical measures, some schemes are suggested; (1) social agreement on the level of child protection for institutional intervention, (2) increasing the capacity of guardian to overcome crisis with children, (3) reflecting child protection schemes in the disaster management plan, (4) sharing sociocultural sense of child protection right between adult generation. Finally, it is emphasized that child safety can be achieved through the adult’s effort of protecting child.
